Most likely you have a bad crank shaft position sensor common on those cars. Do you have a multi meter to test it?

Across the terminals of the sensor with it unplugged it should be abou 800 ohms when they test bad they usually test as a open circuit let me know what you find.

Well I replaced the crank sensor without testing. (Figured while I was under there I could R&R it) No start. The crank sensor was not the culprit. Where do I go from here? Thanks
